Julie’s Malaysia Factory Visit + Giveaway!
I didn’t know what to expect in my second time to visit Malaysia. Although we went through some briefing and was given the itinerary beforehand, I’m still very anxious as my first trip to this beautiful country was definitely a memorable one. It was full of fun adventures, and a one-of-a-kind experience enough to make me want to go back. I love all the awesome places, the very welcoming people, and most especially, the exquisite food. Yes, the food are to hanker for! (See blogposts here)
Nuffnang and Julie’s invitation for me to experience Malaysia again was the second chance I have been waiting for. I didn’t have to think twice, August 25 was the day. So you might be wondering, “What was this trip all about?”
Our mission was to invade Julie’s Factory, and get to know how biscuits are “baked with love”. That’s right, we traveled across countries to witness the production of biscuits. But, you must know this was not like an ordinary field trip to the biscuit factory.

They may have the same name, but Julie’s Bakeshop is a completely separate entity from Julie’s Biscuits. Julie’s brand is big in Malaysia, and it has been here in the Philippines for 5 years now, in case you haven’t noticed yet.
- Julie’s started operation in Malaysia & market since 1981.
- Julie’s has become a household name & largest biscuit exporter in Malaysia
- Julie’s Core values, Passion, Integrity, Conscience & Accountability.
- Committed to Corporate Social Responsibility with its actions & projects, from their Share with Love till the recent The Best of You movement.
Every product, like crackers, cream sandwiches, wafer rolls, waffles, wafer and cookies, is created in perfection. Every piece is made whole-heartedly and with care. Baked with love.
For 35 strong years, Perfect Food has been Malaysia’s forerunner in manufacturing Julie’s biscuits.
The secret? “Whatever we do not eat, we do not let others eat” has been their long-standing philosophy. The brand’s commitment in conducting business has been anchored to the company’s core values – Passion, Integrity, Conscience and Accountability. These values paved the way to the brand’s success and competitiveness in the global market, being exported in 75 countries.
Its pride comes from unwaveringly using premium ingredients, which are free from preservatives and harmful artificial additives like food coloring, by means of modern baking technology. It has gone through rigorous evaluations by international auditors, and received certifications based on international food safety standards. Absolutely world class! No wonder Julie’s biscuits have occupied a space in the exclusive premium biscuits sector. Consumers are guaranteed exceptional quality and value-for-money for purchasing their products.
Julie’s factory is located in Melaka, one of my favorite whereabouts there. The red structures brought a lot of amazing memories. I love Melaka!
Julie’s staff, including their adorable mascot, were very friendly, and they welcomed us with a dance performance. I was thrilled and so looking forward to our special tour slash “field trip” to the Julie’s production zone.
Before entering the main area, we were asked to put on our Personal Protective Equipment, in compliance to their strict cleanliness policy.
I have never seen such overflowing biscuits in my life before! Witnessing each delicate process flow made us all trust and vouch for safe, healthy and delicious biscuits
After our little stint in the factory, we went to a dessert class to learn some sweets made from different Julie’s products.
I couldn’t wait to try the Julie’s Fruity Layer Cake at home. All our creations were very appetizing and pretty. I’m sure you can creatively incorporate Julie’s in making your own desserts with ease. They’re very versatile.

My kids like having different Julie’s products for “baon” or snacks, I’m certain they will crave for the desserts, too. I can’t deny I fell in love with Julie’s Le-Mond in Lemon flavor the instant I tasted it. Love Letters and all the Julie’s Hershey’s variety are the best, too!
The past couple of days were very productive and fruitful. We were enjoying everyone’s company and all the activities our host prepared for us. I didn’t even realize we’re down to our last day in Malaysia. It was quite a food trip!
